URL odditiesI wonder have you noticed the process of URL inflation that goes on with older sites? Cascading layers of directories, thousands of parameters, mysterious, pointless :80s inserted after the domain, needless domain changes, a sea of ten thousand redirects, of all types. Amazon is a particularly blatant offender.
So, anyway, 'http://www.opera.com/download/get.pl?id=28379&thanks=true&sub=true'. Fairly simple, as mad URLs go, but what is this 'thanks=true' thing? I tried changing it to false, but it still brings you to the same 'Thanks for downloading' page. Hmm. A mystery, I suppose. Wasting valuable bytes.
